Residencies

naakita feldman-kiss's audiovisual installations are a means of listening to, translating and telling stories related to shifting landscapes, abstract forms of inheritance and legacy, and the flexibility of memory. His works often take the form of performative gestures representing portraits of interior and exterior spaces. The sound environments incorporate eco-acoustics and tell narratives that use autofiction and emphasize non-linear temporalities to examine different interpretations of the concept of legacy. His current research uses the concept of hauntology to explore the impacts of extractive industry and the colonial project on built and natural environments, while imagining the possible futures contained within a haunted place.
